live from senator john mccain and lindsay graham on this show yesterday. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in a moment that felt much more 2008 than 2012, senator john mccain took to the senate floor telling the president that he's responsible for benghazi. the senator doubling down on the "today show" this morning. >> i'm not taking anybody on. we owe it to their families. we owe to its to other americans. for the president of the united states for two weeks to deny that that was the case is a coverup or incompetence. either one of the two. >> joining me now is capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. what are you hearing about the exact focus of the meeting? some are beginning certain briefings yesterday. >> well, thomas, there's an effort here to try to separate out what has been a complicated and troubling society of facts with respect to what happened with general petraeus and leaving the cia. all of

way four years ago if we had had the electric of 1988, john mccain would have defeated barack obama. the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turn out, the republicans have a disadvantage to service. latino vote, it was huge. though you look at the states, you could argue iowa. state after state, the latino vote if you take it out, the democrats would have lost. even in florida with 61-39, that the majority in florida among latinos but also the younger generation of cuban americans are voting like dominican or puerto ricans. biggest shift. 75-25 for obama. bush actually won the asian- american votes. it was a swing vote leaning republican. yesterday was three to one democratic. urban-rural. it is 60-40 and demographically which areas are growing, the urban areas or rural america? you would not want to bet on rural america to be our population center going ahead. young and old, again, the youngest voters of the most probing, although i will say that the 18-21 voters are less slightly older than they are. the 21-30. which would you rather have, young voters to are g
to be their leader? guest: it is good to end on a loaded question. let me say first that john mccain, who was a great senator, and who was the original maverick and had an independent image, i think he had a very difficult time running into thousand eight following eight years of george w. bush. it was likely time for a democratic president to win so i think john mccain had a hard assignment. with respect to the question you asked, i would say that america elected an african-american, barack obama, and after one of the most intense and expensive and bitter campaigns of all time, reelected him. i would say that is a pretty strong statement of respect for him. some people have said to mate there will be a racial vote in this election. i think it is quite likely that the people who voted against barack obama would have voted against a democratic. host: have been talking with i read shapiro, the author of "the last great senate." thank you very much for being on the program today. guest: thank you for the opportunity to come in. host: the headline in this morning's paper says pot vote raises possibility
to national security, like senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham. however, will not necessarily heard about point the president say -- no way is this going to happen. was for indication that it is one area where, although there's a lot of gridlock here, both parties to agree on this one point, that this should not happen. host: next caller, bob on our line for republicans, new jersey. caller: i have two comments. one is, in this a good idea to go over the fiscal cliff. and i am wondering if the tax cuts expire, does that mean that the 47% better not paying taxes will start paying taxes? if that is the case, let us go for it. it is time people get into the game, even if it is $5 a year. something. i will take your comments off air. host: my question was going to become a what does it mean for him? that goes to the question of how much could this mean not just for everyone, but how much it means on a personal level. we will ask other callers there. what to do think about his proposal that we drive off the cliff? caller: i think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a poss
the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperformed. >> i'm guessing it is bigger in 2012 than in 2008. >> at the performance is a little bit overstated. dig into the data. it is not quite impressive as the polls might have suggested. i had to brag a little bit. i was having a fierce twitter debate over the nature of ohio. nate's model has predicted in this election and had a 49.6% chance to beat ohio in the electoral vote. the tipping state was colorado. where did romney's 47% remarks get him? 47% of the vote. >> we talk about how non-whites are growing, particularly among latinos. unions are shrinking. for the 6% of voters were from the union households. this ticket was only 18 percent. i do think that you are right. it will be more about the sun belt than the rest. >> non college white union members. this is pretty striking. >> let's have another question. in the front. >> you spoke about the long-term trends of declining voter turnout and increased polarization and the emotionalism of v
fewer votes than john mccain, and it looks like he's 2 million fewer, i would have been dumbfounded. >> dumbfounded. is all this a sign that republicans are now ready to meet in the middle on issues like immigration and taxes? will they move faster on immigration? you can join our conversation on twitter. you can find me at @tamronhall and my team at @newsnation. having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and my daughter loves the santa. oh, ah sir. that is a customer. let's not tell mom. [ male announcer ] break from the holiday stress. fedex office. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] don't just reject convention. drown it out. introducing the all-new 2013 lexus ls f sport. an entirely new pursuit. [ male announcer ] why do more emergency workers everywhere trust duracell...?? duralock power preserve. locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. now...guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. >>> welcome back. how to rebrand the gop is the subject of a new series of polls and focus groups and outreach meetings conducted by
votes are clustered in those big metropolitan areas. john mccain in 2008, excuse me, barack obama in 2008 won the 28 congressional districts with 80% of the vote or more and john mccain ten by that margin. that gives democrats a lot of votes in the big states, but it also means that there's not that many democrats in the chase and districts. this time obama carried the same number of states with that percentage and romney may have gotten that percentage in one or two districts in utah. maybe it's time for political scientists and abundance to rule out another rule about locks, who has a lot on which part of the government before that rule becomes obsolete. thank you. >> thank you. now tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for the republicans is in any case with going through the stages of grief, first its bid to be engaged in denial and that is what you saw with the "the washington times" piece that was read today. it's understandable. it's the human response, but it would be very smart for the republicans to get further along in those stages and not stay i
at this. guest: that is one to watch. john mccain was very critical of the citizens in that this case, and he was working with democrats in this congress, and it was postponed with the election. hearing more from republicans, even the head of the finance committee, they're not fans of the democrat's fix, but there could be some movement in the next congress. whether it succeeds we will see. host: the democratic fixed is the disclosure act? guest: yes. guest: i have for democrats concerned about what karl rove was doing, and what koch brothers were doing, but democrats did pretty well when it comes to this alternative funding. it was very powerful at the end and made a difference. we now have a system where both parties do pretty well. of all of the tweets the one that made me laugh was david chiefd, the president's campaign officer, who said there would be a lot of billionaires' at their refund window. host: ray, seneca falls, new york. republican caller. caller: i have an interesting theory. let's make term limits for congress and the senate, then we will get people interested in hel
states, republicans carried one. he basically one what john mccain won, plus indiana, which nobody considers a swing state, plus north carolina. you go one out of 11, then you have the senate tossup. republicans lost nine out of 10. i think senator cornyn and all the folks -- one of the more talented campaign committees i have ever seen. two cycles in a row, they have had the worst loss. when your party nominate people that are so exotic that they have little or no chance of winning general elections, that ought to be very winnable, that is not something campaign committee can do anything about. you have party bosses from washington dictating who are candidates are going to be, or do you allow yourself the diversity of a bunch of wackos? >> a whole bunch of these republican governors were elected in 2010, which was against barack obama, the stimulus, the takeovers. no matter how partisan the state, they will send the opposite party to the state mansion, but they will not send them to d.c. even bob ehrlich one in maryland, and democrats get elected governor -- sullivan in wyoming, s
years. john mccain got 31% four years ago, george w. bush got 40% in 2004. exit polls show latinos are becoming a solid democratic voting black. in 2004, 42% of latino voters called themselves democrats and 31% returns. that moved to 51% democratic, to 21% republican. bill o'reilly had a warning for fox viewers last night. >> just a changing country. the demographics are changing, it's not a traditional america anymore. and there are 50% of the voting public who want stuff. they want things. and who is going to give them things? president obama. he knows it and he ran on it. and whereby 20 years ago, president obama would have been defeated by an establishment candidate like mitt romney. the whitish willment is now the minority. >> unioning me now is joy reid. how bad are you feeling for the white establishment tonight? >> tragic. >> bill o'reilly and the white establishment are founding their powers fading. >> yeah, it's fading. i will concede to bill o'reilly absolutely the the minorities who are taking over the country want stuff. they want to not have voter id laws, they want t
hill watching those who have lost a big election come back. you had john mccain four years ago, john kerry eight years ago. so it is different because during the weeks after he was put on the romney ticket, there was a lot offed a you'll lation for paul ryan here. it is different now. and he comes back and we expect he'll get his same position as the head of the house budget committee. that requires a special waiver because he's had that job for the maximum amount of time. he's still well-regarded by his republican colleagues and i think you get a sense that he's been through a challenging election period. we'll have to see how much of a public posture he wants to have going forward, and so ryan is back, but we don't yet have a measure of how influential he will be. >> what sway then, kelly, do you think he has in the fiscal cliff negotiations? >> everything we're getting a sense of is that this will be a negotiation that at least on front stage will be between speaker boehner and president obama. and so boehner is certainly influenced by ryan's knowledge of the budget, but i don't t
, the minute you knew they had rpgs and mortars. and i think john mccain said that very early on. and he was dead-on. it's just a fact. so, i mean, who else is doing this kind of thing with mortars and rpgs? >> some of your senate colleagues are suggesting a joint house senate committee like the iran contra committee, like the 9/11 commission. can this be handled by the senate intelligence committee and the house intelligence committee? >> oh, it certainly could be. we work very well together. the four corners meet, we discuss. i've had no proposal to that. i'd certainly be open to the proposal. you don't want to make it so big that it's a problem, but on the other hand, this has to be bipartisan and it should be bicamer bicameral, i would think. so i'm open to the suggestion. >> and returning, finally, to the resignation of david petraeus, how badly damaged is the cia and our intelligence community by this? >> well, the cia is going to go on. and the cia will recover. this is a professional organization. it's a strong organization. the number two is very good. he will take over and take
. >> fewer votes than john mccain, however, which i don't think anyone would have necessarily pretty quicked. are we going to learn something about the republican party when we see how the discussions for the fiscal cliff go? >> you're going to see if the republican party is going to give in terms of tax rates and what are they willing to compromise on in order to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff. if they hold steadfast to their position and basically say, it's our way or the highway, they are going to basically feed into this alienation of these key demographic groups. this is what i think every party goes through in terms of when you lose, especially in a race that you thought you had a chance to win. again, i think the problem here for the republicans is the spokespersons of the party, whether mitch mcconnell or john boehner and whoever it might be at the national level, i'm not sure who else that could be at this point, they have to understand that everybody listens now. we live in a different media age. and when you talk in very extreme voices or out-of-touch voices, you aliena
you support comprehensive immigration reform like john mccain did but then refuse to do it when president obama is in the white house, when you have the nominee of the party, mitt romney, saying people should self deport. so their house and go back to mexico. you cannot win latino votes when you make war against them . what againstin california has happen nationwide. -- what has happened in california happened nationwide. i am not sure how much credit arthur davis has. i was disappointed when he left the party and supported mitt romney. i did not buy his reasons for doing so. i would disagree with him on this. i do not think republicans should write off the african- american party at all. they are talking about jobs, improving the economy. if they are willing to save medicare and social security are going to stay, they can get african-american votes. to write them off as arthur davis suggested i think would be a colossal mistake. host: we will get to your calls in just a moment. you can also send us a comment on facebook or twitter. what surprised you about the election? guest:
is another one. the new senator from arizona worked on this issue in the past. then there is john mccain. everything has changed since the election. it was politically not viable and now it has become politically viable. host: this comment by grover norquist from a cbs news story. host: this from nbc news, i apologize. from nebraska.sc caller: thank you for taking my call. latinos when for obama primarily for the immigration issue. you do not think that is narrow minded or the might be other issues that latinos are focusing in. if you would want to discuss those. guest: that is an excellent question. polling shows that what voters care for our jobs and the economy. immigration is either number two or number 3 on their list of things that they care about. it is much higher in places like arizona. it is the number two issue among hispanics. my sense has been that i do not think hispanics always want to be associated with immigration. it is difficult to separate the immigration conversation from them because it is so integral to their lives. 60% of hispanic voters know somebody personally t
conservatives. eventually, truth will out. in 2008, you could have run carrot top in a thong against john mccain and he probably would have won. the fact that barack obama won after all the misinformation and lying, makes me proud that the americans saw through the lies. people stood in line for hours. >> the jeep ads backfired. >> stephanie: this is going to be the difference in the conservative and liberal media. they're going to tell you you're stupid and lazy. we're going to tell you you're smart and pretty and we love you. >> oh, god! >> stephanie: i just, i'm saying i think people would rather listen to a happy lappie message. >> that's why i like listening to your show. i don't listen to them, they're not entertaining. >> stephanie: john fugelsang is saying you're wicked smart and startlingly beautiful. >> too bad we're not backstage in a dressing room. >> he likes to kiss himself. >> preparing for shows is what i meant to say. >> stephanie: by the way john fugelsang threw up just before the show and still knocked them dad, looking beautiful. still knocked it out of the park. see you tomo
over john mccain in 2008. so they wanted to lay out a strategy, get all the people to the polls. and so with the deepest is they invested very early on, a lot of money in state offices. the republicans scoffed at that at the very beginning, saying it was a waste of money and just wait until the end. and that is one of the big reasons the president was able to win. talk to multiple people who went and did fieldwork in ohio on the ground operating as volunteers who work in washington and work out for the final weeks. they said they were able, because they didn't have to drive so far between the fatalities to the offices to get, whether that was registration forms or getting people their checklist or whatever technology they were using, that made him a difference because they could talk to more people. these are hundreds of thousands of door knobs and phone calls they were able to do. so that's a big thing. then when you look at the exit polls, there's a couple things beyond the changing face of the nation, a changing attitude of the nation. when you think about what happened on election n
, and jim web served with honor in vietnam as well as senator john mccain, senator lindsey abraham who continued to serve as a colonel in the air force reserve, and my colleague senator mark kick who is a commander in the navy reserve. the elections this month saw at least nine new veterans of iraq and afghanistan electioned to congress bringing the total of new ernst haves in the next congress to at least 16, some are still counting the ballots in some states. the people of illinois are produced that three of those 16 veterans are from our state. congressman adam kin singer, an air force veteran of iraq and afghanistan, and two exceptional leaders who will join the next congress, bill enier, a new congressman from downillinois, former adjutant general. and my friend, my shero tammy duckworth, daughter of a vietnam vet and one of the first women to ever fly a combat mission in iraq. she was combat ago blackhawk helicopter when r.p.g.'s hit her helicopter. she's worked in both state and federal government on behalf of veterans. what a proud day it will be for america when tammy stands t
that actually mitt got 2 million less votes than john mccain. which no one would have thought. the election wasn't all that close. >> turnout was obviously different than '08. your point is well taken. we're looking at a picture of grover. we had over the weekend bill kristol, another influential voice on the gop said say on fox i don't understand why republicans just don't take the president's offer? are they really going to defend millionaires, half of whom voted democrat and half of whom live in hollywood? those are kristol's views. i wonder if you think the norquists of the world are getting marginalized here? >> i certainly hope so. he wasn't elected to anything. you can talk to wealthy people. no one wants to pay more taxes. but, believe me, we don't get out of bed in the morning and try to figure out what our tax rate is and decide whether we're going to go to work or not. we go to work because that's what we do. i also think democrats have to compromise on entitlements. i don't see why they can't raise the retirement age for people who are maybe younger than 40, medicare. everything has
really got it. howard dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, and it came campaign was-of the mccain cabin was up and down. -- campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the sup
